Jefferson is where the first surgery using an anesthetic was performed in 1842 by Crawford Long. Today, you can visit the Crawford W. Long Museum to see a medical gallery honoring Dr. Long with exhibits of personal family heirlooms, along with displays showing the development of modern anesthesia. You can also visit Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm, which is an outdoor agricultural museum that is unique for its collection of intact historic buildings.

If you happen to be in Jefferson around the last weekend in June, stop by downtown Jefferson to visit the Annual Freedom Festival. There you will find a parade in the morning, live music, games, inflatable bounce houses, classic “American” food (hot dogs, hamburgers, barbeque, cotton candy, fried pickles, ice cream, and more) from local food vendors, and a large fireworks show at night.
